About
There’s something about Matakana Village… Perhaps it’s the fresh country air, the artisanal food and award-winning wine, or the stylish boutiques and galleries you simply won’t find in the city. Whether you’re catching up with friends in one of our eateries, meeting the makers at the famous Matakana Village Farmers’ Market or watching an arthouse film in the magnificent cinema, a visit to Matakana comes with memories to treasure. From the cascading cherry blossoms of spring to the riches of autumn leaves, you’ll find something to savour in every season. Just 45 minutes from the Auckland Harbour Bridge, yet a world away – there’s so much to love in Matakana Village.

Good day out
May 2021
The village is open everyday and the Farmers Market on Saturdays only. It's a good day out for family with children or hanging out with friends.

Lovely Little Town

Every time I visit this spot just keeps getting better. Often very busy and at times difficult to get a park but worth a wonder about. If you can plan your trip around their Market day- it is a treat! Matakana Village is always a spot I recommend for visitors to NZ.

Gorgeous Village
Oct 2020
Oh my gosh - Matakana Village is stunning. The art toilets are a must visit. loads of eateries and boutique stores to shop till you drop - but unique items. The weekend craft market is a MUST to see - goods to purchase and so much food to enjoy. There is so much to see and do here.

Matakana village is a cute little village with friendly staff in the cafes and other shops . The chocolate shop down the ramp from the road is a must to visit . The smell is amazingly.

Village atmosphere
Jun 2020
We were there during the week so didn't experience the markets which I am told are great. We did admire the permanent setup for them which we would love to have in our own town. Someone has put a lot of money and forethought in here. Loved the movie theatres, shops and cafes all in the same place.

Quaint

Nice upmarket place with boutique shops. Certainly not a place for a bargain, more of a place for one off ornaments by local designers. Saturday is market day.
